Just minutes away from the official start of training camp, the Bruins and restricted free agent David Pastrnak have avoided a holdout and come to terms on a new six-year, $40 million contract, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger.
The deal, which will make Pastrnak the third-highest paid Bruins forward behind David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron on yearly cap hit, coming with a $6.66 million average annual value that will keep Pastrnak in town through the 2022-23 season.
The 21-year-old Pastrnak set career-highs in goals (34), assists (36), and points (70) last season.
